1.1 Million Dollars is a lot of Money!

Did you know that during the last legislative session Governor Bredesen and the Tennessee Legislature appropriated over 1 million hard earned tax dollars to the world's largest promoter and performer of abortion, Planned Parenthood?

According to Planned Parenthood's most recent annual report in 2005:

* Planned Parenthood affiliates performed 264,943 abortions in its own facilities across the nation;
* Planned Parenthood affiliates killed more than 5,000 unborn babies every week of the year;
* Planned Parenthood affiliates enjoyed a 2.4% increase in overall income from 2004 resulting in a $55.8 million surplus nationally.

Taxpayer funds now account for 34% of the organization's income.

Ending a Life at Planned Parenthood: $550
TN tax dollars given to abortion provider: $1,100,000
Defunding Planned Parenthood: Priceless

Take action now by signing our online petition to our legislators urging that they end preferential treatment for the pro-abortion movement in 2008.
